Comedian Bill Maher told his HBO "Real Time" audience recently that God was a "psychotic mass murderer."
He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that's about to hit the big screen.
"But the thing that's really disturbing about Noah isn't the silly, it's that it's immoral. It's about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God," Mr. Maher said, adding, "What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he's mad at? I mean, besides Chris Christie."
Mr. Maher continued: "Hey God, you know you're kind of a [expletive] when you're in a movie with Russell Crowe and you're the one with anger issues. [...] Conservatives are always going on about how Americans are losing their values and their morality, well maybe it's because you worship a guy who drowns babies."
In addition to believing in God, Mr. Maher said that the real problem conservatives face today is the restrictions they but on themselves, not the restrictions enforced by big government, The Blaze reported.
"I'm reminded as we've just started lent, that conservatives are always complaining about too much restraining regulation and how they love freedom, but they're the religious ones who voluntarily invent restrictions for themselves."
